Presentation: "Regional Advantages in a Tight Labor Market"

Steven G. Cochrane is managing director of Moody’s Analytics.

He also edits the Regional Financial Review, the firm's monthly publication that analyzes U.S. macro, regional, industry and international trends.

Many of Dr. Cochrane’s consulting projects focus on state and local economic development. Early projects include a study of the industrial structure and comparative economic advantages for Sonoma County CA, followed by a 10-year update that modeled alternative outlook scenarios based on recommended improvements in labor force quality and green industry initiatives. Other projects have included studies of the changing industrial structure and economic competitiveness of Arizona, North Dakota and Pennsylvania, and the city and county of San Francisco.

An analyst with Moody’s Analytics since 1993, Dr. Cochrane has been featured on Wall Street Radio, the PBS NewsHour, and CNBC. He earned a PhD in regional science at the University of Pennsylvania and is a Penn Institute for Urban Research Scholar.
